Look around at our Catholic world. Do you ever wonder why Tradition isn’t taking hold? Why the power and beauty of the Mass of the Ages is not enflaming hearts everywhere? Why don’t people speak the language of Faith? Have you noticed that, even among those holding fast to Sacred Tradition, there is a reluctance to talk like a Catholic? Have you even noticed a certain superficiality in matters of religion? Have you wondered why?
As a psychologist, I propose a reason. I think that at a deep level—perhaps out of their own awareness—the religious convictions of many have been diminished, if not lost. Their thinking has been altered by false teaching and the constant shaking of their faith.
By the waters of Babylon we sat and wept
As we remembered Sion
When I was a little girl, ten years before I became a Catholic, I had enough Christian sense to know that a person was supposed to go to church on Sunday. My parents weren’t that interested…they didn’t think it was necessary…besides there were so many children and Mama didn’t have a hat. But I was determined to go. The church was only a mile or so away; it was walkable.
“It is the Argentine attitude: Suppress and ignore”—V.S. Naipaul
' Pope Francis was quoted telling the Chile abuse victims.
No. You weren’t part of the problem... you are the entire problem. You appointed and elevated a predator protector. For three years, you steadfastly protected him, despite overwhelming evidence that he should be removed as Bishop and from priestly ministry.
You suppressed and ignored a tsunami of requests, pleas and evidence about Bishop Juan Barros’ complicity and involvement with predator priest, Fr. Fernando Karadima. was removed from his priestly duties and banished to a life of penitence, after a guilty finding at the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith.

Vatican II & Pope Francis: Fr. Clovis Interviewed by Michael Matt
RTV in LONDON: Michael Matt interviews Father Linus Clovis. The conversation covers the question of refusing Communion to pro-abort politicians, the necessity of the TLM, Pope Francis, and Amoris Laetitia, which Father calls a "Trojan Horse."
Plus, is Pope Francis an anomaly, or did Vatican II make Francis inevitable?
And fear ye not them that kill the body and are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him that can destroy both soul and body in hell. - Matthew 10:28
From love, Timothy Peter Leonard was created, and from hate, he was destroyed.
Born on the Feast of the Holy Apostles, June 29, 1893, the County Limerick native seemed destined to win a martyr’s crown, like Saint Peter, who was crucified upside down in Nero’s amphitheater, and Saint Paul, who was beheaded with a sword in Aquae Salviae.
But rather than in Rome, the Eternal City, he would win his in a desolate mountain village, deep inside pagan China.

Down in the catacombs, Michael Matt comments on Katy "I Kissed a Girl" Perry being invited to speak at the Vatican last month. Perry, an outspoken champion of LGBTQ rights, was honored with a personal meeting with the Pope and entrusted to help the Vatican promote Transcendental Meditation. We're sure Pope Francis & Co were merely trying to convert Katy, and that that's why she was singled out in this way. After all, didn’t Our Lord eat with the tax collectors?
By the way, Katy Perry's breakout song, I Kissed A Girl, was nominated for the Kids Choice Award in 2009, and after her visit with Francis she announced the celebration of the 10-year anniversary of the song's release.

Has the entire Catholic Church gone Darwin? Everyone else has. Even a brilliant guy like Jordan Peterson! Cardinal Pell thinks Adam and Eve didn't actually exist. Pope John Paul 'The Great' said Evolution is more than a hypothesis. Of course, Pope Francis is an evolutionist. But what about you? Are you ready to throw Genesis under the bus, just to accommodate a theory called 'Evolution'? Come to St Paul on May 8, 2018 for the AOTM season finale: Chris Ferrara vs. St. Thomas University's Dr. Peter Distelzweig – “EVOLUTION: At War with Church Teaching, Or Not.”

Michael J. Matt interviews Dr. Jesse Russell at the Argument of the Month. With special emphasis on the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, the discussion tackles how, years ago, the Land O’ Lakes Statement, Father Ted Hesburgh, Father Charlie Curran and others spearheaded the effort to induce Catholic universities to go from citadels of orthodoxy to citadels of militant political correctness. What has happened to free speech on Catholic campuses in 2018? Why are Catholic universities and colleges throwing off their Catholic identity? Are Catholic institutions of higher learning even Catholic anymore? If not, why are Catholics still supporting them? Why don’t we abandon the status-symbol “Catholic” colleges and sign up with the actual Catholic colleges such as Christendom, TAC, Ave Maria and Franciscan?
